Diploma or Certificate in Photography: Professional and Artistic Studies


There are no entrance examinations and no English tests. We require that you speak and understand English. The candidate has to fill out an application form from our website. In the first year we teach you the basic techniques of photography, painting and drawing. Our philosophy is to let students discover their hidden talents and give them the opportunity to develop them.
